Recent guest reviews

Everything was okay, especially the convenience of the beach and the awesome view. My only issue was the fact that is was majorly outdated, the room had an stale odor and I did not feel that the bed covers were up to standards!

Terrible housekeeping during our stay. Hotel is dated, needs a makeover and new elevators. Location is good and the front desk staff are friendly. Unsure if I would recommend.

This hotel is dirty, old, has a crabby staff, and way overpriced. Yes, close to beach, but this is definitely NOT the side of Myrtle Beach you want to bring your family. We will be staying close to the boardwalk next time. The difference is like night and day compared to this part of the beach. This hotel is ready for a complete demolition. It smelled disgusting. There were hairs on the linens. Foil on the stove top drip catches. Trash still in the wastebaskets and a ton of flyers for pizza delivery (which would have been so appreciated if they weren't the most God Awful places in the free world, more on that later aka Fresh Burger Co. which literally had me in tears by the end of the night) Anyway, this place is an absolute dump.

Need to fix head board on pull down bed and clean behind.

Our room was comfy with good lighting. Nice loungy chairs in the room, beds and pillows comfortable. Loved watching the sunrise from our balcony.

It was wonderful to be within walking distance of the beach. And there were some wonderful treats like a spa and pool and the lazy river was fun also. Wonderful stay indeed!

Beds were super comfortable, the bathroom was clean the room had a nice little kitchenette with good size fridge and even a little couch near the balcony. We did close the door to hard on the patio resulting in us getting locked out of the room on the wrong side but with a simple call to the front desk the problem was fixed. Over nice beach front and pool were nice. Parking kinda far though

We just came back from a 4 night stay and it was ok. Defiantly nothing special. The grounds and pools were nice. It was very crowded though, lots of kids. Not really my idea of relaxing. Never had an issue finding a chair. The room needed serious updating. We were on the second floor so our “oceanview” was really a view of the generator in the parking lot. Room size would have been tight with 4 people. The maid service was terrible, she only came one day. The second day she only replaced towels, no bed making or anything and the third day she didn’t come at all. We also had an issue with our shower not draining which wasn’t fully fixed until the end of our stay. They did offer compensation for the issue but we had to ask, it wasn’t offered. The wifi was also absolutely terrible. It took several minutes for pages to load and wouldn’t even work in the rooms. I was not able to get any work done. There were no beach towels, so bring your own. You also cannot take chairs down to the beach. We thought the location was good considering we did not have a car. It was about a $11-13 uber ride from airport and $5-6 to everywhere else (skywheel, broadway on the beach etc.). The piggly wiggly was about a 15 min walk, subway and ice cream shop was a few minutes. Mini golf was also within walking distance. Considering the hotel was right on the beach, it was a good price. Would I stay again? Probably not.

Just needed a place to crash before leaving early the next day for Costa Rica. It served its purpose.

Nice clean rooms on the beach .staff very helpful

I stayed here for two weeks in November. Great view, friendly staff, quiet, and walking distance to a couple of great places to eat. I was very pleased by my stay and will look at staying here again the next time I visit Myrtle Beach.

Hotel needs some sprucing up. Some of it looks dingy. Rooms are ok but on the small side. Oceanfront view was great. Higher the floor the better. Staff are nice.

Parking could be better but still a nice place. Will stay again!

Great beach area and pools. Walking distance to shops and restaurants Room is outdated and needs upgrades

It is always nice staying at a clean well maintained hotel.

I would say the best thing about this hotel is the walking distance to the beach, restuarants and bar. I was in suite tower and liked the quietness of this tower. The main pool had a DJ which was fun.

Great setup close to beach ocean front they have a bar at the pool with entertainment on some nights lots of space to lay out older hotel but for the most part is clean in the rooms just a little dusty on curtains hallways need some updated carpet but overall hotel not too bad for the price and access to the pool and beach

Great location within walking distance to many places! Plenty of free parking. The room was clean and the ocean front view was priceless! Service was above average even though we are very low maintenance anyway. the staff were very polite and friendly I would recommend this hotel to friends and family. They only drawback is the property is spread out among 4 buildings and there was not a "front desk" in our building. It felt as though anyone could enter and exit the building with no challenges. Beach access is a breeze (but they do close and lock that access at 10:30 pm which is annoying since you have to walk out front and around the building) with that being said I would still return.

I selected this hotel because the reviews were mostly pleasant and the price was good compared to other hotels. With that said, I never expected an additional $60 per night in hotel fees/taxes and would have gladly paid more for a cleaner and newer hotel. Each floor smelled terrible off the elevator. We walked into our room and noticed hair in the freezer and shower, food crumbs from the previous guests still on the floor and chairs, water damage to the ceiling, and dirt and grime in every corner of the bathroom. Oh and the oven didn't work. My biggest problem happened after checking out. The hotel charged me a $100 smoking fee. My wife and I do not smoke and we had no one else in the room with us for the entire stay. I called and spoke to the manager to get the fee refunded but he said he went into the room himself and wouldn't return the fee. After threatening to have my bank reverse the charge he eventually called back and said he would reverse the fee. I have to wonder how many times they have done this to guests out of state who may not look closely at their credit card statements. I would never return to this hotel and would advise everyone to stay very far away.

Hotel somewhat dated but the outdoor areas and beach were wonderful.
